The Crookston School District had five
representatives at a job fair in the Twin Cities this week as they are looking
to fill teaching openings in the district. There were over 1,000 teaching
candidates at the job fair and over 600 school districts from as far as the
Dominican Republic. “This was our first time going and the booth looked good,
we had a tablecloth with a Pirate on it, we had a good image,” said Bates.

will likely do it again after making several new contacts. “There is a shortage
of applicants so anything we can do to help with that is helpful is good,” added
